Study scientific fundamentals and explore the foundation of all living things!

Why Biochemistry at Bay Path University?

Biochemistry is the study of the chemistry of life. This program is intended for those interested in the chemical and molecular aspects of the life sciences and the reactions that underpin living systems, such as those that provide cells with energy to perform myriad activities and functions and the biosynthetic reactions that enable cells to repair, grow, and divide. The Biochemistry program provides a mechanism to study the chemistry of molecules found in living organisms—in particular proteins, DNA and RNA, lipids and carbohydrates. Students gain the knowledge and experience needed to pursue a variety of career paths.

As a Biochemistry major, you will:

  • Explore the reactions that occur in all living things
  • Study the chemistry of molecules
  • Take an array of courses in math, biology and chemistry
  • Learn in labs equipped with the latest technology and instrumentation
  • Pursue special research projects and activities

With access to state-of-the-art equipment typically found only in industry and graduate laboratories, our students gain real-life work experience and put theories to practical use. Our instrumentation includes:

Bay Path Science Student Places 8th in Video Competition!

The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) held a contest called "Film Your Research." This contest had the goal to get scientists connected with the concept of “visual science” by making a 2-minute video featuring a researcher performing a scientific experiment/technique in the laboratory or in the field. Nicole Gousy, a Bay Path science student, placed 8th out of 200 submissions from graduate students, post-docs, and research scientists. Click here to check out her video! Nicole also won a poster award for her work at the Active Site 2017 conference at Northeastern University. She was awarded a $500 travel award to attend the American Society for Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Annual Meeting in San Diego!
